This has become quite a popular thread. I can certainly see why. I love the variations and differences we all have. The work is stunning.

I wasn't happy with my first one. It didn't quite turn out like I had planned. This one is much more my style. It was done with a variety of layers, all of them with one setting or another of the Filter>Stylize>Trace Contour. Each layer was inverted and the lines were either minimized or maximized according to whimsy.

Accidental - but I like it

Playing with the layer mask of a smart blur-edges over a copy again, and ran the Torn Edges filter over what I had already painted in the layer mask, and voila! Decided to desaturate it and like it.

Looked at Jaykita's great work and tried to paint in her cheekbones shadowing -- mine just looked like she smudged her face with soot !

Lots of creativity going on -- great to look at all the different variations!

Thanks, Janet, I'd forgotten about contours.

I had made a little action for tracing contours. It was fun to do, but then I couldn't find anything useful to do with it.
So maybe this is the right place.

Hi Vicki...

Glad you had fun.

This is a terrific first pic (and writeup) in the Photo-art forum. Congratulations. I hope we'll be seeing more of your work in the future.

And a great first attempt it is too. Welcome to the forum Nkollias.

Ohhh, Jaykita and Byro, I like your interpretations ever so much.
